Can someone tell me what the safe jack points are in the center of the mazda 6 for a floor jack? I found the scissor jack points in the manual, but nothing about a floor jack.

I'm gonna paint my brake calipers gold this weekend (and hopefully add some mazda 6 decals from ebay) .

Right where the Y pipe is in the rear (where the exhaust splits to the two mufflers) there is a solid flat mount point for a floor jack.

On the front, there is one directly after the front air dam ends, under the car. You'll see a cresent shaped cut in the airdam bottom, with a little welded piece for the jack to push up on.

How did I know you were gonna be the one to reply? Thanks again, Cross.

FYI, I'm still waiting for my wheels. The 235/45/17 Toyo T1S's are just sitting in my garage right now.

Hey Crossbow,

Are you this informed about other things besides the Mazda 6? The level of accuracy you give to the questions some people ask is awesome.. Now if only I could start bringing ALL my questions here... you know.. on cooking, camping, buying a house, mixing explosives or the NYC subway system..

just wondering.

Just computers mainly. One of my secondary jobs is hardware consultant for the cg industry, with about 5-6 yrs of experience working with various animation and production houses.

Most of the car information I'm sharing is publically available through

http://www.mazdatechinfo.com

So the reason some of my answers are "highly accurate" is their basically coming from the workshop and training manuals for the mazda3 and mazda6. You can't really get much more accurate then that . I'm just really a sophisticated cut and paste robot.

A robot!

I knew it!

if I ever have any CG questions (which I won't), I'll be sure to ask away (which you won't have to worry about)

Same token, you got plumbing questions.. I'm SOOOOOO your man..

and one day.. we'll collaborate on a CG-related movie about PLUMBING!

oh man.. goosebumps just thinking about it.

Spin the idea to pixar. I'd sure they'd love to do some sort of plumber based concept animation film. Remember Mario and Luigi are one of the most popular gaming characters of all time, and their plumbers!

I think the ability to animate Captain Lou Albano as Mario is far.. far beyond even your CG capabilities.. How do you animate "stink"?

(FYI, Albano was Mario on the kids cartoon/live action Mario show)
